New Mediterranean Service at Burchardkai (Germany)
On Monday night, the Santa Balbina will become the first ship from the new Femex 1 Mediterranean service to call at the HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB).
The service will provide a direct weekly connection from Greece, Turkey, Malta and Morocco to Hamburg. It will consolidate the position of the French container shipping company CMA CGM in the Mediterranean and boost trade between this region and the Port of Hamburg. The Femex 1 service is sailed by vessels with a capacity of nearly 3,000 TEU. Next week, the Santa Balbina will be followed at Burchardkai by the Meta.
